Clinton Hill

Clinton Hill

The West Village has nothing on Clinton Hill. New Orleans-style row houses, turn-of-the-century mansions built by Brooklynindustrialists, small cobblestone streets leading to parks or restored townhouses, and Pratt Institute, one of the top art and design college and graduate schools in the world have secured this neighborhood as one of Brooklyn's top international destinations and most charming enclaves. 

The sculpture garden and library at Pratt are inspiring. Myrtle Avenue has become an important retail corridor with a host of stores dedicated to eco-friendly living, pet care, and costume jewelry. Art and furniture galleries are popping up. Proximity to the Brooklyn Navy Yard and Pratt mean a strong art and culture scene. When people think of "magical Brooklyn," they think of here.
